Barcode scanner choices - Industrial, Ruggedised

Posted by Katrina Marentis

Barcode scanners - industrial, high performance scanning for extremely tough conditions At BCP Media we recommend a rugged barcode scanner if there's a chance of it being covered in dust or dirt, sprayed with water or dropped from forklifts or by employees on ladders. Investing in the right scanner for your environment will provide the longevity and performance you need to achieve a maximum return on your investment.

Meet Motorola’s family of Symbol rugged barcode scanners

Motorola offers both a corded and cordless version of nearly all the products in its rugged barcode scanner family. The corded models are an affordable option for situations in which your employees don’t need to move far from the host computer in order to scan items, while the cordless products give your employees more flexibility, allowing them to work up to 300 feet/91.44 meters (dependent upon environment) from the host and minimizing the chances of downtime occurring as a result of a cord being damaged.
